ATG: Why art?
We both had other career paths and jobs in our younger days but art provides us with a creative outlet and is very fulfilling on a personal level. We still get excited when someone decides to purchase a piece we created, even after 20 years making and selling our work.
ATG: How is your personality reflected in your work?
Our work contains a lot of whimsy a reflection of us.

when we go back to it, sometimes we work on something else in the meantime.
